WE had a very nice celebration dinner. With COVID firmly in place, they did a good job of social distancing everyone, and the servers were careful and kept their masks on fully the entire time. We had prosecco, and appetizer, and shared a salad and the pasta special. The calamari and zucchini appetizer is excellent and the pasta special was light and delicious. Highly recommend.

There was a bit of confusion about our table but it was resolved and we had a great lunch. Pasta of the day was delicious and my daughter’s gnocchi were like pillows.
Lovely place to have an outdoor lunch.

I took a friend to Toscana for her birthday lunch. The food was delicious, the wait staff was exceptional, and the atmosphere was perfect! Most of all, my friend felt special on her birthday which is in large part due to the staff. I highly recommend Toscana!

We have been to Toscana numerous times and this is the first time I was not pleased with the service. The hostess called to confirm our reservation a head of time and we requested patio seating. They gave us a table outside of their fence enclosure so we were sitting in a walkway, taking away from he feel. Our service was slow and we felt neglected at times.

This is the ultimate restaurant for authentic Italian cuisine in the Charlotte area. The Bronzino is my favorite, but the lasagna is not to be overlooked. Toscana creates a wonderful dining experience on all levels.

Great Date Night. Never been to Italy, but the ambiance - white table cloths; Italian sculptures, oil paintings and decor; little black round tables on cobblestone Patio - it was definitely a little Italy in Charlotte!! Service was different than what I was used to - multiple servers came by at different times to just receive the next course; was a bit impersonal - but still, everything was delivered the way it was supposed to/nothing was forgotten. Food was some of the best Italian cuisine I’ve ever had; everything from scratch and the flavor profiles were light to add the extra flavor, but not enough to overpower any dish. And menu prices were just what you’d expect from this caliber of authentic Italian cuisine. Definitely a place I’ll be returning too!!

I ordered the salad on the lunch special menu. It was described as Bibb lettuce with mandarin oranges, beets slivered almonds and goat cheese. It was basically all goat cheese. It had 4 leaves of lettuce, 1 beet slice, about 10 sections of mandarin oranges and as many slivers of almonds. The goat cheese was the dominant ingredient. There were two huge pieces of goat cheese that resembled slabs of homemade mozzarella. The cheese was simply overwhelming and I did not eat any of it. The salad was so skimpy, I went home and ate lunch.
I have eaten dinner at Toscana on many occasions and always enjoyed it but I don’t think it is the place for lunch if you want a salad. The cup of lentil soup ($4) was good but a $14 salad prepared the way it was served was not a value.
Had I not been a guest of an old friend, I would have sent it back. When my friend saw the salad his immediate remark was, “Do you want to order something else. That’s all cheese.”
The staff was friendly and eating outside was nice.

Delightful, charming patio seating by a lovely fountain made for a lovely evening of wining and dining. Excellent food preparation and plating of osso bucco and veal piccata. Favorite dessert, tiramisu was quite excellent.

Make every day a special occasion and enjoy a wonderful visit to this "piece of heaven" in Charlotte.

The Veal Piccata was delicious! My Halibut was a bit dry as it was overcooked. It still had a great taste. Ambience and service, as always, was wonderful.
The Cream Brule and Chocolate deserts was a perfect ending.

Both the food and service were excellent. We sat outside and the atmosphere was very pleasant. One of our party had a birthday and two small desserts, one with a candle, were brought out at after our meal without any prompting from us. This was a very nice added touch and much appreciated.

We would definitely return.

Another favorite SouthPark restaurant. I haven’t had a meal, yet, at Toscana that wasn’t worth every penny! Indoors or outside in the courtyard, the atmosphere is welcoming, relaxing and reminiscent of Italy.

It was a beautiful evening and we sat outside to enjoy it. As always, the food was very good. Our only criticism was that the staff seemed to not want to be there and as such they weren't at all welcoming.
